Read Comments on this Story (1 Comment)

Born in 1947, James Morrow has been writing fiction ever since, as a seven-year-old living in the Philadelphia suburbs, he dictated “The Story of the Dog Family” to his mother, who dutifully typed it up and bound the pages with yarn. Upon reaching adulthood, Jim channeled his storytelling urge toward the production of theologically-inflected satiric fiction, including the critically acclaimed Godhead Trilogy. He has twice won the World Fantasy Award (for Only Begotten Daughter and Towing Jehovah) and twice the Nebula Award (for “The Deluge” and City of Truth). In recent years Jim has composed historical fiction informed by a fantastika sensibility, including The Last Witchfinder and Galápagos Regained, the French translation of which received the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire.
